Restless Crickets are part of a group of insects and animals that will disappear after chasing them. So making sure you know where they can be found might be difference between snatching them and having them fly away. The main locations you can find crickets are in freshly cut grass or under a rock. When looking through grass, make sure you have a sword or weapon that can perform a horizontal slash. Swing your sword to cut the grass, and a cricket or two will appear. Just make sure you’re quick on the draw or they’ll be gone before you know it.
